Audi A8 One of the Best Luxury Car

July 27, 2009


When you think about German automotive excellence, Mercedes and BMW are 2 brands that simply spring to mind. Audi, too, has been making a name for itself and is poised to cause a large amount of trouble for its Bavarian cousins with its current line of autos and planned models. The elite of the crop Audi is the A8, a true champion and a terrific alternative to BMW and Mercedes. Let’s take a closer look at Audi’s top-of-the-line sedan and what it has to offer to you, the ECU sedan enthusiast.

Back in 1994 Audi made a decision to take on Mercedes and BMW by introducing an all new automobile the full size Audi A8. As the 1st vehicle built on a wholly aluminum platform [for weight savings optimization] the Audi A8 has been consistently restating the German luxury car market ever since. Back in 1997, the Audi A8 became the first car in the planet to offer six air bags. Later, stronger diesel and gasoline powered engines were introduced to further separate the brand from its competitors.

Since 1997 the A8 has been marketed in the States, but it hasn’t swiped as many sales away from Mercedes and BMW as Audi had was hoping. Still, the current model offers much aptitude and technological creativity to be actually a different model from BMW’s 7-Series or Mercedes’ S-Class.

One thing that Audi enthusiasts have appreciated about the Audi A8 is its various engine decisions. Actually , a tough petrol powered V8 is offered, but other engine decisions including V10 and V12 engines have shown up too. Turbo diesel aspirated V6 and V8 engines have made their way onto European versions of the car, but not in America where emissions standards are tons more restrictive.

So, what exactly can you get with an Audi A8 besides a wide variety of engine choices? Much, as revealed here:

6 speed Tiptronic transmission

Quattro all wheel drive

Power sunroof

Bi-Xenon headlamps

Front and rear foglamps

Premium sound system

18 inch alloy wheels

Full leather interior

…much more!

For a retail price of slightly under $70,000 for the “base” model, the Audi A8 is priced competitively against similar sized BMW and Mercedes models. However, if it is speed that you would like, then the W12 model will get you there in about five seconds. In this case, you’ll have to pony up at least $118,000 for the top-of-the-line Audi A8.

Of course, not everybody wants a car as big and as expensive as the Audi A8. If your tastes are faster, the automaker markets thirteen other models in North America and its Volkswagen division also offers a wide selection of less expensive models.

Then again if it is an Audi A8 that you need, then price may not be an object. At least Audi hopes it is that way for many of its well heeled customers!.
